New York Times Celebrates Soviet Spy

More red meat for the socialists

He had all-American cover: born in Iowa, college in Manhattan, Army buddies with whom he played baseball.

George Koval also had a secret. During World War II, he was a top Soviet spy, code named Delmar and trained by Stalin’s ruthless bureau of military intelligence.

Atomic spies are old stuff. But historians say Dr. Koval, who died in his 90s last year in Moscow and whose name is just coming to light publicly, was probably one of the most important spies of the 20th century.

On Nov. 2, the Kremlin startled Western scholars by announcing that President Vladimir V. Putin had posthumously given the highest Russian award to a Soviet agent who penetrated the Manhattan Project to build the atom bomb.

The announcement hailed Dr. Koval as “the only Soviet intelligence officer” to infiltrate the project’s secret plants, saying his work “helped speed up considerably the time it took for the Soviet Union to develop an atomic bomb of its own.” 

Leave it to the Gray Lady to put the Soviet spy who infiltrated the Manhattan Project and sped up the Soviets getting The Bomb on the front page, at least on the Internet. Last time I checked, that was a bad thing, helping to lead to a repressive dictatorship of a 3rd world country with aspirations of world domination having nuclear weapons earlier then they should have, and 50 years of cold war.

Dr. Koval was a traitor to the United States. If caught, he would have been executed, and rightly so. Of course, we know how those on the Left fell about Soviet sympathizers and spies, having ignored the threat since the 1920’s. In fact, they demonized anyone who brought it up. Apparently, giving aid, comfort, and intelligence to the Soviets was a good thing, in Liberal World. Much like they do with Muslim extremists today.

The Times does make one goof

By 1934, Dr. Koval was in Moscow, excelling in difficult studies at the Mendeleev Institute of Chemical Technology. Upon graduating with honors, he was recruited and trained by the G.R.U. and was sent back to the United States for nearly a decade of scientific espionage, from roughly 1940 to 1948.

So much for the talking point that the U.S. government was not infiltrated by Soviet spies.

The rest is a gushing article extolling how great he was. Sickening.

    Just think Blackbeard that the WW II Nazi saboteurs who landed from U-Boats in Florida and Long Island NY were electrocuted by FDR (90% of them)… And today NY Governor Spitzer would ISSUE them all NY State Driver’s Licenses?
    Webster’s defines TREASON as a violation of allegiance toward one’s country or soverignty, especially the betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting TO AID ITS ENEMIES!

    They were former Nazi spies and scientists Ayatollah Ryan. NASA got some and the Russians got most. That’s why the Soviets beat us into space. Just think Comrade Ryan… all of that money that could have gone to Hillary’s ‘children’ during the Cold War….! Give ’em ALL NY state Driver’s Licenses so they can vote for the donkeys, mules and jackasses. Sorry the Bear Nation was hard on you… TOO BAD!
